Sarah Elizabeth Scott
April 5, 1927 – May 16, 2019
Sarah “Sally” Scott, 92, daughter of David Uriah and Matilda Brown, wife of Rev. Clinton “Harry” Scott (retired) went home to be with the Lord on May 16, 2019 at home in Port St. Lucie, Florida. She was a beloved wife, mother, sister and friend. Together with her husband Harry, they purchased land and built their first home in Osborne Store, Clarendon, Jamaica where they raised their eight children. Part of that land was donated for the construction of the Open Bible Church, which still stands today. They later pastored the May Pen Open Bible Church and during this pastorship started the May Pen Open Bible Preparatory School. Sally attended Moneague Teachers College in St. Ann while raising her children. She taught at Porus Primary School and Osbourne Store Primary School. She later became a school principal. She also played a leadership role at the May Pen Open Bible Preparatory School. Sally served as an educator for over twenty years in Jamaica. Harry and Sally later emigrated to the United States with their family in order to enhance educational opportunities for their children. While in the US Sally continued to pursue higher education and became a certified drug and alcohol rehabilitation counselor in Hartford, Connecticut, from where she retired after twenty-one years of service. She obtained her Connecticut driver's license at age 53 and drove almost 30 miles one-way to and from work, working primarily second shift. She also received her associate's degree at age fifty-seven. As is quintessentially Sally, she sacrificed personally and professionally for her family, but never lost sight as she persisted to fulfill her goals. Sally leaves behind her husband of sixty-four years, two sisters, eight children, twelve grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her parents, a brother and a sister. Sally's unwavering confidence in her faith in Jesus Christ was the foundation of every aspect of her life. She will be remembered for her contagious laughter, spontaneous sense of humor and her unapologetically direct opinions, sometimes controversial. Sally was known for warmly welcoming others into her home and making them feel like family. It is said that the evidence of effective parenting is not how one's children turn out but how one's grandchildren turn out. Sally was dearly loved and will be sorely missed by the many lives she touched.
